Over all I had a great experience. And the tools learned helped me when I relapsed to quit again.

A real find! One of a kind state of the art addiction treatment. Non-12 step and SMART recovery were great. I also can\'t say enough about the kind and non-judgemental staff. Highly recommended for those desperately searching for an alternative to the 12-step mindset.

Alternatives is the most advanced and current treatment center in my area. I did a lot of research and this was the only place that addressed the biological issues like genetics and fitness/nutrition in addition to brain function and talk therapy. I loved my experience here and would strongly recommend it to anyone looking for an empowering experience!
